Jennifer and Dan had their traditional Jewish wedding celebration at Hotel Orrington with a reception to follow. Their colors were chocolate brown, yellow and white with touches of orange and flowers included callas, billy balls, orchids, hydrangea, zinnias, marigolds, spray roses, calendula, and button mums.
This was our second wedding at Orrington, which looks even more beautiful than I remember! I am so glad Jen picked colors to compliment the carpet, walls and drapes of the reception/ceremony space–it all worked perfectly!
For the personal flowers, Jen wanted a small, textural hand-tied bouquet of callas, billy balls and cymbidium orchids. The bridesmaids carried nosegay-size bouquets of callas, billy balls and spray roses with chocolate satin-wrapped handles to compliment their dresses. The bouts and corsages were made with callas, billy balls and spray roses to match. Everything was very chic and understated.
For the ceremony, Jen and Dan were married under our Chuppah (a Jewish wedding canopy that represents a home) with sheer fabric draped down the sides and 4 round mixed arrangements of yellow and white flowers were attached to the posts where the fabric gathered. We also draped the stage with white fabric to match. We doubled-up the aisle runner to make it wider so 3 people could fit down the aisle and lined both sides of the aisle with submerged orchids/callas in cylinder vases. These were later reused as half of the centerpieces. We finished the look by roping off the inner aisle so only the bridal party could walk down it. It was beautiful, formal and elegant–and the perfect setting for their wedding-in-the-round!
For the reception, Jen and Dan rented our monogrammed card holder to hold their gift envelopes, and we sprinkled petals on the gift and escort card tables for added color pops. The head table and cake table also got petals, and the guest tables got either a trio of submerged calla/orchid cylinders or a short full arrangement with lemons lining the inside of the vase. They were such beautiful centerpieces for the space!
I enjoyed working with Jen and her family to make all of the details of the day look awesome. I wish Mr. & Mrs. Goldstein a lifetime of happiness! Mazel Tov!
